Read full description of the books:
‘Picaflor, that’s what they call a hummingbird here: a snacker, nibbler, pecker of flowers.
Is that what I am? A restless searcher of sweet nectar?’
In Picaflor, a true story, Jessica Talbot invites the reader to travel beside her as she searches for love and meaning, while traversing the fascinating countries of South America. Along the way she lets go of grief, grasps hold of the present and finds herself occupying her own weather beaten shoes.
When unexpected signs appear on her path she asks, ‘Is this serendipity or fate?’ As the journey unfolds she realises that you don’t need to know, it can be magical either way.
The story starts with Jessica getting a tattoo of a hummingbird, a reminder of new beginnings. Then a kiss at sunrise in the snow-dusted Andes of Peru sends her on a restless, risky journey that ends in Argentina. As she travels through unknown terrain, new friends give her important insights into the meaning of friendship, and old ties strengthen as she frees herself from the past. It’s in the exhilarating but complicated city of Buenos Aires that she finally understands what it means to feel 'home'.

Read information about the authorI was born in New Zealand. When I finished my Master's degree and a post graduate in clinical psychology at Otago University I moved across the sea to Melbourne.
After working at a child and adolescent mental health service in Melbourne, for seven years, I needed a big change in life. A strange prediction, from ten years before, pushed me into motion and I flew to Peru to work with street kids. The adventure that turned into a book began in the lofty Andes of Peru - with a tattoo and an Argentine surfer!
I have been living and working in Buenos Aires for the last ten years. It is a fascinating and complicated home that I share with a wonderful husband and a son - who adds colour to even the grayest moments with his smiling eyes.
It was a long journey to get to where I am and another tough journey to finish 'Picaflor' and release it into the world, but I'm grateful for it all and happy to share the story.
